Degree Show 2023

Our annual Degree Show is an opportunity for our graduating students to showcase their work to industry, friends, family, potential students, and the public.

The Degree Show is such an exciting and valuable event for students, staff, and visitors; it is a culmination of so much hard work, and a chance for students to celebrate, share and exhibit their final year projects.

We are pleased to be able to offer an in-person and digital exhibition across the range of Design and Creative Arts courses and present the amazing creativity and rising talent our students have. The shows are open over several days, and include additional events and activities as listed below.
